House Mice Threat, Prevention And Control

House mice can invade properties and can be a severe threat. They do not hibernate and are active even during colder temperatures, thus being one of the major winter pests.

These rodents are grey or brown rodents with relatively large ears and small eyes and an adult is about 5 to 7 inches long, including the 3- to 4-inch tail.

House mice live in and around homes, farms, commercial establishments, as well as in open fields and agricultural lands. The onset of cold weather each fall in temperate regions is said to cause mice to move into structures in search of shelter and food.

House mice are considered as a threat to human beings as they cause both structural damage and health issues.

• House mice consume and contaminate food meant for humans, pets, livestock, or other animals. In addition, they cause considerable damage to structures and property, and they can transmit pathogens that cause diseases such as salmonellosis, a form of food poisoning.

• Micro droplets of mouse urine can cause allergic in children. Mice can also bring fleas, mites, ticks and lice into your home. 

• Structural Damage: Mice will gnaw upon wall and attic insulation, electrical wiring, and containers of stored human and animal foods. Stored items may also be gnawed upon.

Three elements are necessary for a successful trying prevent mice. Sanitation measures, building construction and rodent proofing, and, if necessary, population control.

When food, water, and shelter are available, rat populations can reproduce and grow quickly. While the most permanent form of control is to limit food, water, shelter, and access to buildings, direct population control is often necessary.
